Eaton's giveaway rate is better than Scuderi's or Orpik's. Actually, it's better than any defenseman's on the team. It's probably more that he doesn't have many hits, and while his BS rate is high (only slightly lower than Scuderi's) he's played 11 less games.
I think the one flaw of this list is that it appears to go by raw data rather than rates. Guys that have missed time get punished for it, although I guess staying healthy or staying in the lineup can be considered an intangible itself.
